Planning and planning

February 22, 2016

This is the week of the 25th annual Arkansas Flower and Garden Show and a year’s worth of planning is going to come to fruition. The weather had looked like clear sailing until they changed the forecast today, and now a chance of winter weather may be sneaking in late tomorrow into Wednesday, hopefully more to the north, but we really don’t want any at all, since we do have vendors who come from all over. By the weekend, the actual show dates Friday – Sunday it looks like perfect weather, so plan to come to the Statehouse Convention Center in downtown Little Rock. Today I got delivery of a “diamond” project by MG Charles Gunn. ark diamond and charles.

I finished my powerpoint on silver plants that highlight the garden which I will present Saturday afternoon at 2:30, and printed the handouts.

I also had a lunch meeting with the executive team for the 2017 MG State ConferenceIMG_7786. mg2017 planning feb.161 They have really got things organized and are geared up to take the reins when 2016 ends. By the way, the 2016 Conference in Eureka Springs2016 mg logo is officially full with a waiting list–and that is a new record. Totally full in less than three weeks! If you want to be added to the wait list, you can call in.

Tomorrow we begin to start setting up for the AFGS with the display gardens beginning installation. I will give you a sneak peek.
